In the wake of data abuse scandals and several instances of malware app being discovered on the Play Store, Google today expanded its bug bounty program to beef up the security of Android apps and Chrome extensions distributed through its platform.

The expansion in Google’s vulnerability reward program majorly includes two main announcements.

First, a new program, dubbed ‘Developer Data Protection Reward Program’ (DDPRP), wherein Google will reward security researchers and hackers who find “verifiably and unambiguous evidence” of data abuse issues in Android apps, OAuth projects, and Chrome extensions.
